Christopher Heyerdahl Talks New Moon

Jul 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

Sci Fi Wire has an exclusive interview with Christopher Heyerdahl, who plays Marcus in New Moon!

“Here’s how I approach him. When Marcus is brought in, he’s there against his will. He and his love tried to leave an awfully long time ago. Through a series of tragic circumstances, the love of his life was killed, and he’s now being forced to stay and use his powers for the betterment of the Volturi. He’s not exactly there, waking up and looking forward to eternity. When Edward and Bella come walking in, his ability to sense the power of their connection is something that wakes him up, brings him back from the boredom of that eternal life and sparks something in him that brings Marcus as close to excitement as he can get. That idea has to be contained and expressed as little as possible to his rather power-hungry captain-in-arms, Aro, which makes for a rather interesting conflict. You might not know it, but Marcus is pretty darn excited by this love that he witnesses. At the same time, it causes him great pain with the memory of what he had and lost. It was very complex to play, especially when you are doing it with so few lines. It will be interesting to see how it is cut together.”

    He is perfect to play this role with, like he said so few lines to really tell all of the important history.
    He also seems passionate to fufil that role in a way that everyone can fully understand, not just fans.
